Delay Cournot duopoly models revisited. This book reflects the state of the art in nonlinear economic dynamics, providing a broad overview of dynamic economic models at different levels. 1. Introduction. In the classical analysis of the stability of the Cournot solution, dynamics stems from a series of myopic reactions.

2 Firms maximize their current profits under the conjecture that their rivals will not change their output w.r.t. the previous period of the game.

However, since none of the firms actually keep their output fixed from one period to the subsequent, firms compute. The sufficient conditions for local stability of a unique Cournot equilibrium are much less restrictive than what the existing literature suggests.

For a symmetric cost oligopoly the unique Cournot equilibrium is almost always locally stable, except for a perverse case. Journal of Economic Literature Classification number: L Seade, J. The stability of Cournot revisited. Journal of Economic Theory 15– CrossRef Google Scholar. Singh, N., and X.

For this and other reasons a re-examination of stability and related questions, using only elementary mathematics, seems timely.

Duopoly, the condition in which there are two competing merchants, was treated by A. Cournot in His book went apparently without.

Description stability of Cournot revisited. EPUB

Cournot provided an explicit dynamic stability argument for his model by imagining sequential play by each agent (myopically best-responding in the current period to the existing output levels of all rivals); this is referred to as best-reply dynamics and when this process converges the solution is termed stable.

Using best-reply dynamics to. dynamical systems is used, that is the Cournot point is identified as a fixed one. Finally, it is proved that for identical unit costs the Cournot point is a sink for two or three competitors and a saddle for more than four players.

Assuming a set of sufficient conditions for the global stability of the Bertrand duopoly equilibrium, we derive additional conditions which are sufficient for the global stability of the Cournot duopoly equilibrium.

The book focuses on the dynamics of nonlinear oligopoly models. It discusses the classical Cournot model with a large variety of demand and cost functions that illustrate the many different types of possible best response functions and it shows the existence of unique and multiple equilibria.

The classic Cournot model is static in nature, with each (single-product) firm’s strategy being the quantity of output it will produce in the market for a specific homogeneous good; as Kreps () observed, Cournot’s model was an early progenitor of Nash’s famous paper.

Seade, J. The stability of Cournot revisited. Journal of. A Cournot equilibrium in a duopoly model is a pair of output levels y∗ 1 and y2∗ that are consistent in this sense—each firm i is maximizing its profit aty∗ i, subject to what the other firmj has chosen, y∗ j.
